There is always HOPE

 It is a sad fact of life: Once we are born, we start to lose…

You are here because you have lost someone or something very special, and you have no idea what to do or where to go or how to get there.

And it hurts. You are in pain. There may be tears and depression and hiding from the world and from your friends and family.

You feel lost.

We lose good friends, spouses, children, jobs, pets and our health.
Sometimes we lose faith in ourself or the world.
And when that happens, we are clueless about what to do and how to move forward.  

And why is that?
Because our parents do not teach us these lessons, nor does our society.
We need to learn the correct way to “lay them gently down.”
Grieving means to complete the relationship with the departed, to say goodbye (not to forget about them!) and to be able to move
forward to lives of joy and celebration.

There are (only) 3 steps from grief to healing:

1. Accept the loss

2. Cope with the loss

3. Embrace the new life you have created

Nothing will be the same, but it won’t hurt so much, and you will be able to look back and remember your loved one, and move forward to a life filled with joy and celebration.

The good news: You are not alone, I will be with you.

I care and can help you recover and heal and move on to a future filled with hope.

I can help you move “from mourning to morning.”
Look through my website, then call or e-mail me with any comments or questions.
I look forward to meeting with you.

Grief IS Okay…

You ARE strong and resilient enough…

I will take very good care of you!

Why Does It Take Some People So Long to Heal?

Actually, it’s a trick question. The reality is, it takes people as long as it takes. Some take longer to heal, while some take less time. There are lots of variables which contribute to the answer, such as how close they were to the loved one, or how many previous losses they have healed from. Read More…
